  1. With all my other plugins converted to R20, and temporarily out of the way before I start adding new features, I wanted to spent some time on finalizing EasyUV. As a first step I wanted to get the plugin working for R16-R19. Step 2 would be to port it to macOS. And final two steps would be to port it to R20 on Windows, then to R20 on macOS. Quite some work ahead. For Seamilar I had created all icons in a drawing application. But this time around I wanted to model them, as I figured it would be faster to adjust. As well as reuse and interchange parts between icons. And it allowed my to finally learn how to use the Takes system inside Cinema 4D. As each icon is a different Take I could "simply" set up all the Takes and then perform a single "Render Takes". And all would be output as 32x32 bitmaps at the press of a single button, for perspective or top-view cameras. The scattering of the icons is maybe not that artistic, but I found it nice looking ... and it helped to take my mind of from all the coding I had been doing all day long. With step 1 completed it's time to take the next one.
  2. Dials and my other plugins are now available for R20, see blog post below
  3. PolyGnome and my other plugins are now available for R20, see blog post below
  4. Seamilar and my other plugins are now available for R20, see blog post below If you are looking for an easier way to do UV mapping than using the native tools, and don't need all the features available in Seamilar, you might want to look at EasyUV instead (coming soon). It is based on Seamilar but has less features, and as such will be less expensive.

    C4DS plugins - R20 upgrade

    With all the excitement of announcing the website, I forgot to mention that, for a limited period of time, all plugins will be available at a 15% discount, to celebrate the launch.

    C4D Cafe - Steam Punk Project

    I have been reading this post a few times over and over, not really knowing what to answer. But I surely admire the idea behind it. It's a grand endeavour starting up such a project. I, myself, am an hobbyist when it comes to 3D. I have been at it for almost 3 decades now, and still consider myself amateur. Sure, there are areas where I still need a lot of learning, and where this project might be useful. But I don't have skype nor discord, and frankly am not looking into getting any. Additionally I am not too sure if I'll have the time or perseverance to complete any of the assignments. Not wanting to sound negative, but while I very much like the idea, I don't see myself joining in ... at least not just yet. Reading the post a few more times might convince me, though. Still, a big thank you for providing this opportunity. Wish you all the best with this project. Maybe one day I'll be part of it.

    C4DS plugins - R20 upgrade

    There you go. All the janitor work has been completed, or so I hope. Website is up and running, ready to accept visitors. Mind you, it's a very basic place to be. No fancy embellishments, nor bells or whistles. It's just a placeholder for information about the plugins. Simple, down-to-earth, "no chi chi" ... but I hope you all still like it. https://toolspixels.be

    Indeed I do, but am waiting to have finalized all the "behind the scenes" before making it public.

    C4DS plugins - R20 upgrade

    Preparing for the public release ... website is all up. Existing customers have received priority and opportunity to upgrade. It's now (almost) time for everyone else. Still finalizing the finishing touches for a nice deal.

    Best basic rig?

    The body doesn't have enough subdivision in the vertical direction (pelvis-to-shoulders) to be bendable. If you'd want the body to also be able to twist around its spine you then will also need to add some extra subdivisions left-to-right

    cant rotate axis

    Difficult to tell without the actual scene file to check. A screenshot of your UI could maybe reveal something, i.e. in case you inadvertently locked some axis, or something. But I guess the best would be we could have a look at your scene file and experience the issue ourself.

    C4DS plugins - R20 upgrade

    Conversion of my plugins to R20 is completed. I have recently informed existing customers of Seamilar and PolyGnome about the news, and am giving them now priority to upgrade. Soon I will make an official announcement here at the C4DCafe, after which everyone will be able to purchase Seamilar, PolyGnome and/or Dials. And this for R16 - R20, Windows and/or macOS. Edit: Plugins are now available at https://toolspixels.be For a limited period of time plugins are at a 15% discount. (the order form at the website shows to original price, discount will be added on the invoice)

    Happy New Year!

    Still an hour and a quarter to go, but we're off to bed ... Happy New Year.
  14. Finalized version 1.1 and wrote the documentation. An early Christmas present sent out to those having donated ... check your e-mails. Others will need to wait for the official release, in a few weeks.
